PATRIOTS vs. COLTS

Reggie Wayne  -- used differently, but as solid as ever.
Expectations for Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib.
Dwight Freeney -- it's been a tough year for him.
Darius Butler -- former Patriots could be starting at corner.
Adam Vinatieri still getting the job done.

TWITTER QUESTIONS
@BrayneSoopreme – Can you talk about your time with Rodney Harrison and how Harrison handled the type of stuff that Brandon Spikes is dealing with now?
@MrTICgamer – What do you think is the main issue with the pass rush?
@pchicola – Why do the Patriots’ maintain such a basic scheme on defense – no zone blitzes or complex coverages? Always Cover-2 man, zone or Cover-1.
@AntonChigurh – The linebackers look slow and lost in pass coverage; fair to say it’s an issue to watch going forward?
@SimbaDibinga – Why when offenses struggle for 3 quarters but make plays to win they are clutch, but when defenses do the same, they are no good?
@ArjunaRamgopal – Serious problems with tackling for Patriots’ defense or bye-week rust?
